Preparing the door box

Plus the self-assembly of the door box of individual elements is that in doing so you can adjust its size to the size of the aperandion, sawing the necessary elements with a knife if necessary. This is especially true for the installation of a glass door, which can not be cut and you can change only the size of the opening and the box.

Installing a door box in an aperandy

The finished box is installed in the doorway and leveled, using the building level and wooden wedges.

First, you need to attach the loops. To do this, apply the loop to the end of the door and circle with a pencil. With the help of a chisel in this place in accordance with the painted outline, choose wood on the thickness of the loop.

After that, the door is put in a box, and the places of fastening loops are marked. Also, a chisel chooses a tree on the thickness of loops. The hinges are screwed to the door box and the door is put on them.

To close the box-wall connection, you should install the cashiers. They are attached to the box with small carnations.
